Bibi and Peres will be disappointed. They didn't broadcast those speeches widely, deciding to focus instead on the significance of the day to their own individual countries and on the religious ceremony at Auschwitz. The world is learning to take our politicians less seriously and to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Holocaust misappropriation is equally dangerous and also profoundly disrespectful to its indecently numerous victims, both dead and still living.
